Might finally have a use for my excess gold then.
It's strange that the AK catch up is 500 resources when that's how much you give in to get AK the regular way (that takes a couple of days). Are we really sure you can just hand in 500 for instant AK?And - Tokens for Hearthstone packs? Wow! Turn your WoW gold into Hearthstone packs. That will be pretty amazing.
We tested it on the PTR and right now it works instantly (but bugs at 10 even though the item says it goes up to 15).
The point is to get new 110s viable more quickly, not to penalize them.
Being able to buy services and in-game items from the Blizzard store for gold is a MASSIVE improvement. I've always disliked subscription games that have extras for real money, it leaves a bad taste in mouth. Guild Wars 2 has a similar way of doing things, and it does it without a sub fee too. They have a large gem store of cosmetic items, but you can directly convert the in-game currency into the gems, so you can pay for anything with real or game currency.But being able to buy items for ANY Blizzard items, games, skins, mounts, card packs, is quite mind-blowing actually. I'm expecting the token price to go through the roof (or through the sky for EU realms, lol, it's already approaching 100k).
update belf female animations pls, they make no sense, and especially belf female hunter animations are just broken, they break their shoulders with every shot.
shouldn't the AK catch up item be BoA? How is this a catch up mechanic for my twinks if this requires to farm order resources from world quests on the twinks? Not only are the world quests for order resources super limited at the beginning, they also a scarce resource for the first couple of weeks until you have all order hall improvements. On my main, I am at 50.000 order resources waiting for the next best thing to come up to buy with them.I think they should come up with AK catch up items that are BoA (work up to level 15) and can be purchased for 10.000 (or whatever other amount) order resources.That way I could invest 50.000 order resources from my main to get 5 levels, farm 5.500 on the twink and go straight to AK level 15 and have one research going.
Im already rank 15 research. And i need absurd amounts of AP (28 traits purchased) i dont think that helps at any way for me. Neither my alts. I wouldve preffered if they put like 3-5k price for a book that works over 15.Or at least reduce the timer amount... For like 1 month all my 4 characters are like 3+ days each order.
I really hope that when bonus rolls award artifact power they do so only when you would otherwise get gold. Otherwise I suspect a large amount of the playerbase are going to think they got AP instead of loot.
I'm not sure how many people noticed, but crafted items can now be upgraded up to 10 times with Obliterum.
Wanted to say congratulations to Method. You guys are constantly impressive in every single raid.
Blood of Sargeras i BoP yes, but the Order Resources Cache you buy with blood in Dalaran is BoA.
